hydrologic network

hydrologic network An integrated array of meteorological, groundwater-level, and stream-flow measuring stations which in combination give a complete measurement of the hydrologic cycle for a particular area. In modern practice the various measuring and gauging stations are sometimes linked by telemetry to a central monitoring unit for use in flood forecasting. See FLOOD PREDICTION.
